Today at Microsoft’s E3 press conference, developer Bluehole announced that the console version of its hit MMO survival game Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds will be available first on Xbox One.
At the time of this writing, no exact date has been announced, but the developer did say that it will be available in fall of 2017.
The developer also revealed a brand new trailer for the title, in full 4K quality, which you can of course find at the end of this article.
For those that don’t know: PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is a third-person battle-royale, last-man-standing shooter from PLAYERUNKNOWN aka Brendan Green, a pioneer of the Battle Royale genre. As the creator of the Battle Royale game-mode found in the ARMA series and H1Z1: King of the Hill, Greene is co-developing the game with the aforementioned Bluehole. And apparently Green has struck gold.
In the game, players start with nothing and must fight to locate weapons and supplies in a battle to be the lone survivor. Described as a “realistic” and “high tension,” the game takes place on a large 8×8 km island built in Unreal Engine 4. It’s wildly intense at times, and has created some the best GIFs in video games since its launch.
Playerunknown’s Battleground is currently available as a part of Steam’s Early Access program, and has been since March 23rd, 2017. It’s currently unknown (pardon the pun) when the title will be coming to the PlayStation 4, or any other console for that matter.
